small engine repair shop

Where would you guys recommend to go for atv small engine repair? Have been to Enns Brothers once before but the wait is usually 2-3 weeks. I'm in the east beaches area and the closer to me the better, having said that I could take it to the city if there is a highly recommended shop. Thanks for your input.

The machine is an Outlander 400. This should be a fairly simple carb adjustment - the problem is I've done literally everything that I know of that can be done. The machine will idle and run over 50% throttle, however, in the 1/4 throttle range it just dies. I've taken the carb apart 15 times and soaked/cleaned/compressed air/ etc etc. Shone a light through and absolutely no blockages. I'm 100% confident it is not a cleaning issue. That said I've adjusted the fuel screw from 1.75 turns all the way out to 3.5 turns with no improvement. The float looks good, the needle is fine, the rubber diaphragm is good. Mid range is typically a needle issue but again I can't see any problems here. So I am at a loss as to what else to look at or adjust. I've also put in a new spark plug. If anybody has other suggestions I'd be glad to hear them. In the meantime I'll send the PM. thanks guys!

Does the choke help it run or make it die? Simple check for rich or lean.

This depends on where the fuel screw is set - but either way in the 1/4 throttle range it dies whether the choke is on or off.

Jets are definitely not plugged, have taken them out, shone light through them and they are clear.

If choke don't help it then I would think the isle circuit is set too rich.
How did you clean the jets? What did you use to poke through them? Is it an air screw or fuel screw? Is your float set properly or is it letting too much fuel in causing it to die? Does your needle and seat seal off the fuel flow?

If the atv is still together.Start and spray brake clean all around the intake's and any other area that would cause a air leak.Simple test.Either the rpms will raise or die at point of throttle breakdown.

Give Gary Budge at Master Tech in East Selkirk a call @ 204 482 7606 . He does small engine repair but all the time I have dealt there I cannot remember seeing a quad. I know he does good work.........might be worth a shot !
